Gamefy apologise for leaking Team DK's tactics at The International

gamefy the international

Gamefy have apologised for its camera crew at this year’s Dota International, saying they “entered and began filming the player’s rooms without the permission of Valve and Team DK.” The footage they uploaded contained DK’s drafting strategy for their upcoming match against Evil Genius.

While DK still won their game against Evil Genius, Weibo user Dr_Kleiber wrote to Valve saying that “DK’s core strategy and their drafting ideas has been completely exposed in this video, which would put them in a very negative situation in their following games not only against EG but also against other teams.” And calls for a strict penalty against the company.

Prior to their games at The International, teams are allowed to use a set of private rooms to discuss strategy for their upcoming games. These areas are off limits to everyone else, even the teams’ coaches. Despite this Gamefy sent a camera crew behind the scenes and recorded Team DK’s discussion. the video was posted to Chinese streaming site Youku, where it was translated into English and uploaded to Gosugamers.

While the video on Youku was taken down at the demand of Team DK’s coach, the translated video was spread to Youtube. Essentially, DK’s drafting strategy is now public knowledge.

Dr_Kleiber, and other Dota fans, have called for Valve to reprimand Gamefy in some way. As yet, Valve have remained silent on the matter.

However, Gamefy has published a statement on their Weibo account, which was translated into English by Reddit user Bikini, saying:

“Dear DK players and beloved dota 2 fans,

“Gamefy's film personnel entered and began filming the player's rooms without the permission of Valve and Team DK, and accidentally uploading the sensitive information. We sincerely apologize for our actions.

“We acknowledge the problems and frustration that were caused to team DK by the video, and we are fully aware of the hurt that was caused to dota 2 fans. According to Valve Corporation's rules and regulations, the personnel responsible cannot continue to participate in TI4 news reporting; We will also strictly adhere to the rules of the organizing committee. Without further permission from valve, we will not enter player's rooms to conduct any kind film work.

“Lastly, we would hope for forgiveness and understanding from all of team DK, all dota 2 fans and lovers, and other TI 4 players; and let us put our passion and enthusiasm into the reporting of the next phase of the tournament.

“We hereby apologize.”

Gamefy’s producer has also responded, translated by ergsws, calling for the Dota community to ease back on their criticism of the Gamefy reporter, “I know that however many times I apologize, this cannot satisfy the rage from the fans but I still want to say sorry sincerely on behalf of X and our team and plead the community to stop criticizing this well-intentioned young man and give him another chance. I believe that after this incident, he would learn from his mistake and continue doing better in his future work.”

So, Gamefy will continue reporting at The International but they will not repeat their mistake of entering a team only area. At this point it’s up to Valve to make a decision as to whether a more strict punishment is called for.

We’ll know soon enough the full extent that this leak has had on Team DK’s play. If teams know how they’re going to pick their hero lineup they’re at a strong disadvantage.

 刚才这篇东西在隔壁已经被口水淹没了,但有些东西说还是要说的。

  本来,没去西雅图的我完全可以置身事外,但被DOTA2粉丝们喷的就是我手下的“小朋友”,我作为他的直属领导,肯定是要负主要责任。但在这里,我想先介绍一下这位“小朋友”。

  X是一个很开朗的男孩,进入游戏风云刚满一年,进新闻组也就半年时间。和外界所喷的恰恰相反,他是一个忠实的DOTA2粉丝。如果大家有心去看一下最近半年的DOTA2新闻,有不少很有看点的新闻就是他自己去拍摄,写稿和做后期的,是我们组里专门跟DOTA2的专业记者。平时也一直开着DOTA2的客户端,因为工作时间开着游戏这事,也没少被我喷。这次去西雅图,新闻组就派出了他和另一个刚入职同样也是DOTA2脑残粉的小朋友,以他们为主,加上其他几个同事来负责前方的新闻报道。

  虽然从年龄来说,我们出去报道的记者编辑都是小朋友(相对我来说),但他们报道DOTA2的时间和资历并不算短,甚至算得上是目前团队中最专业和资深的了。

  可能在大家的眼里,去西雅图看比赛是福利。但我们出去做新闻报道的,除了可以呼吸一下没有雾霾的新鲜空气以外,工作强度之大是难以想象的。尤其是新闻除了需要及时以外还要专业,更需要亮点。顶着时差熬夜通宵几乎是日常。当然最大的不同是我们这次多了一个曾经的战友如今的对手imbaTV。其中更有我们每日游报最早负责电竞新闻的责编,所以这次的压力对我们来说是前所未有的大。前两天imbaTV抢先做了啸天和mik的新闻,更是让前方有了紧迫感。

  想法设法让国内的玩家们了解到Ti4的最新资讯,这是我们给前方定下的要求。但没想到今天醒来一看,却看到了X犯了如此严重的一个错误。

  这次Ti4,大家对于DK乃至所有的中国战队都充满期待,在这一点上,X和所有的DOTA2粉丝们是一样,甚至更甚于普通玩家。因为他也经历了去年的Ti3,切肤之痛感同身受。

Just this thing in the next saliva has been flooded, but some things to say or want to say.

Originally, I did not go to Seattle can stay out, but fans are DOTA2 spray is my men, "children", I, as his immediate leadership certainly should bear the main responsibility. But here, I would like to introduce the "kids."

X is a very cheerful boy, entered the game situation over a year, six months into the newsgroup it. And outside the spray on the contrary, he is a loyal fan of DOTA2. If we determined to take a look past six months of DOTA2 news, there are many great surprise news that he went to shoot, writing and doing the latter is that we now DOTA2 Group specialized professional reporter. Usually it has been open DOTA2 client because this thing working time driving games, nor was I less spray. Went to Seattle, newsgroups dispatched the children he and another newly recruited brain damage is also DOTA2 powder, with their main, together with several other colleagues to be responsible in front of the news reports.

Although age, reporters and editors are the kids we went out reports (relative to me), but they reported DOTA2 time and seniority is not short, or even claim to be a team currently in the most professional and experienced.

May be in everyone's eyes, went to Seattle to watch the game is welfare. But we go out and do news reports, in addition to no haze can breathe fresh air outside, a large work intensity is unimaginable. In particular, in addition to the need for timely news than even a professional, but more highlights. Stay up all night wore almost daily difference. Of course, the biggest difference is that this time we had more than a comrade now rivals imbaTV. Among them are the first responsible for our daily swim newspaper Zebian gaming news, so this is an unprecedented pressure on us big. Two days before imbaTV whistled across the sky and the first to do mik news, even more so with the sense of urgency ahead.

Idea of ​​trying to make the domestic players learn the latest information Ti4, which is in front of us to set requirements. But I did not expect to wake up to look, but to see the X guilty of such a serious error.

The Ti4, DK everyone for all the Chinese team are even looking forward to, at this point, X, and all DOTA2 fans are the same, or perhaps even to ordinary players. Because he also experienced last year Ti3, painful experience empathy.

Its super effective!

How the hell has Valve not talked out about this yet?

This is a mistake against a fairly obvious rule (Don't go filming the private rooms that even coaches can't enter), that could have potentially lost a team millions of dollars.

Just because DK won doesn't mean that Gamefly should be let off easily.
